It’s Mardi Gras y’all!! Let the feasting, parades, beads, balls and King Cake eating begin!! We take this season seriously in Louisiana and we love to share it with all of our friends around the world. During a ski vacation in Breckinridge, CO one year, the Louisiana guests organized a parade through town complete with throws!! We ship our King Cakes around the country to spread the cheer, and of course, we welcome you to attend our parades!
The King Cake is my favorite tradition for Mardi Gras – the lucky person to bite into the hidden baby will have good fortune in the new year and has the honor of bringing the next king Cake to the office, school, etc. This exchange allows the opportunity to taste many different King Cakes – no two are the same. Preferences vary widely from the traditional cinnamon to cream cheese filled, praline filled, strawberry, chocolate, etc. I have listed a few legendary bakeries below that will ship this yummy goodness to your door!
Don’t forget the parades!! The season is underway with parades rolling in New Orleans now through Fat Tuesday. Check out Mardi Gras New Orleans for parade schedules. If you want a smaller town parade, many smaller towns host parades the weekend before Fat Tuesday. We look forward to hosting our annual parade party for the AMGA Krewes Parade – Throw me something Mister!!
